Right then, ready to sign?
In each lesson there will be a nursery rhyme or song from one of our classes for you to learn. This week it is Old Macdonald (see above).
The sign for “Old MacDonald” that we use in babysign is the sign for man or male. This sign is meant to depict a man’s beard.If you look at the baby videos you will see Beatrice signing it beautifully!
“Farm”is depicted by extending your thumb over an imaginary fat tummy. Many years ago Farmers were thought to be rich and plump and that is believed to be the derivation of this sign.
You will also learn the signs for Dog, Cat, Cow and Horse. If you want to add other animals in this song have a look in the dictionary and include them in the rhyme.
You don’t have to use all these signs, just pick the ones that are relevant to you and your baby.
Finally, just a suggestion that you learn these signs and become confident in using them before moving on to lesson two.
Good luck and happy babysigning!!
